  Verizon Dry-Loop DSL FAQ    
 

On Jan 1 2008 we have launched Dry-Loop DSL service in the Verizon markets. This means that the Customers do not have to qualify using a 10 digit telephone number but instead they can qualify by address. This is only available for users who are in Verizon territory where Verizon would supply there local telephone service if they had a land line at there residence or business.

Advantages of Verizon Dry-Loop DSL

  1. Provide Internet access to users with no land-line phone number (28% of all Households and growing fast).
  2. If you currently sell VOIP, Increase margins by selling the bandwidth to your current VoIP users.
  3. No additional fees/charges. It costs the same as standard DSL.
  4. Compete with Cable providers

Differences of Dry-Loop DSL vs Regular DSL

  1. Verizon does not do any inside wiring, they simply hook up the dry DSL circuit to the demarc on the outside of the house.
  2. Verizon can take 2-4 weeks to provision a Dry-loop circuit.

How does the setup differ from regular line-share DSL

Verizon dry-loop circuits are installed up to the NID by Verizon technicians. Typically this involves dispatching a Verizon Tech to the physical location to complete and test the install, but not always. We've found that there are no 'hard and fast' rules when it comes to Verizon, most things such as dispatches are left to their discretion.

Verizon doesn't perform any work on the circuit past the NID (aka DMARC or junction box), or at least they're not supposed to. Anything past the Telco side of the NID is generally considered the property owner's responsibility. But there has been the RARE occasion where a Verizon Tech, being the nice guys that they are, will assist the subscriber with an issue that they find on the subscriber's side of the NID. Essentially, by opening a ticket with Verizon we're authorizing them to do whatever it takes to fix the issue. Verizon passes those charges on to us, and since anything past the NID is the owner's responsibility we typically have to get pre-authorization for those charges just in case we have to pass those charges on to you with the expectation that they will be passed on to the end-user. The charges (if they are necessary) are $60.00 for the first half-hour and $35.00 for every subsequent half-hour and can fall under the category of 'Custom Install Charges'.

Usually a dry-loop install happens one of two ways:

  • If the subscriber has an existing copper-pair going to the location with no dial-tone the stand-alone (dry-loop) DSL might be installed on the existing wiring.
  • If the subscriber has an existing copper-pair going to the location with active dial-tone often a new copper-pair will be run to the NID and tagged with the stand-alone (dry-loop) number.
In the case of situation #2, where it's not always clear to the Verizon Tech which terminal/jumper/pair the dry-loop pair needs to be connected to, they sometimes leave it un-connected. It would then be the responsibility of the property owner to make arrangements to have the tagged dry-loop pair connected to the appropriate internal wiring. In some instances Verizon will neither tag or connect the pair with the dry-loop signal. Because of this, we encourage you to put a note on the NID that says ... "Verizon tech, please tag the new line" or "Verizon tech, please install the new dry DSL line into place that will hook it up with the existing inside wiring", etc. You would be surprised how much directions can help these folks. In the case nothing is tagged and sync does not work you would have to notify us and we usually have to open a ticket with Verizon to have them send a Tech back out to the location to tag the dry-loop pair.

If I am already in the Program, how do I setup Verizon Dry Loop DSL

#1 - Go into your backoffice at https://orders.value.net/Tools and click on the "subscriptions" link on the left hand side. You will see that under network #3 and network #8, there are now seperate "standalone" packages. You will need to setup a pricing plan for these packages.

#2 - In the backoffice click on the "administration" link, and then click on "prequal HTML" at the top of the screen. You will need to put the "Standalone DSL Prequal HTML" and put the NEW html code off your website. This new HTML code will allow Dry loop DSL orders in the Verizon areas that we service.
